San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 12, 2010
To help educators rejuvenate their passion for teaching, Teachscape’s higher education division, in partnership with Cardinal Stritch University and Marygrove University, is offering free face-to-face events to learn what quality traits make a teacher a hero to students.
The Spring 2010 TEACHER AS HERO (TAH) schedule will offer face-to-face meetings in select cities nationwide. Teachscape, the leader in the development and delivery of outcomes-based instructional improvement and professional development programs for educators, uses these events to foster motivational conversations that will invigorate an educator’s interest and passion for the teaching profession. These informal professional development opportunities allow educators to join a conversation based around transformative classroom moments. TAH provides educators with an open forum to discuss teaching traits, to learn about strategies to help maintain joy in teaching and combat teacher fatigue, and to share stories that make teachers everyday heroes. Each session also discusses online master’s degree programs that enable teachers to continue their education and fulfill their teaching aspirations.
“TEACHER AS HERO allows educators to connect with their peers and take part in an innovative professional learning opportunity,” said Melissa Jaivin, Vice President of Higher Education for Teachscape. “Teachers are responsible for being intelligent performers for many hours each day, and it is not surprising that this takes its toll on motivation and creativity. TAH provides the forum for open communication and collaboration to ensure that teachers are learning new skills to keep students captivated with the learning process.”
The Spring 2010 TEACHER AS HERO schedule is as follows:
March events include March 18, 2010 in Hackensack, New Jersey and March 24, 2010 in Troy, Michigan.
April events include April 19, 2010 in Prince William County, Virginia, April 20, 2010 in Halifax, Virginia, and April 27, 2010 in Mankato, Minnesota. (Event information to be posted after March 17, 2010.)
A TAH event in May is being held on May 19, 2010 in Morris County, New Jersey.
